Hi all, A quick backstory on the 1:1 car. I don’t know a lot of the details, but what I learned is that the Dutchboys took this car to SEMA in 2015. The car set, and raised the bar for pro touring cars. My build is NOT intended to be a replica, just a tribute to capture the look of the car. I fell in love with the paint job when I saw it. Soooooo….. I added fender flares, and raised the wheel openings on the body modified Aoshima wheels added a splitter, modified the rear spoiler and bumper, photo etch grill, removed front turn signals for air intakes, added turn signals in bumpers 3d printed intake and air cleaners, made headers from 1.5mm solder, interior has a roll bar, hand made shifter, carbon fibre decals, photo etch door handles, speakers, gauge surround, and keys in the ignition. MCG printed gauges, sub woofer, fire extinguisher, embossing powder carpet and package shelf paint is Tamiya grey primer, Tamiya gloss black, Dupli-Colour GM medium Garnet red followed by Mr Hobby super smooth matte clear As I mentioned above, this is not intended to be a replica, just a tribute. I put my own spin on a few things. I am including more than my usual amount of photos to try and show the paint in different light. Still need a good sunset shot…. I’ll add that when weather permits. Honestly, the colour is hard to capture with my limited photography skills. Anyhoo, enough babbling here it is. First 3 photos are obviously the real car and inspiration Sorry for excessive photos…. just trying to show how much the paint changes in different light. Here is a couple of photos for comparison. The 67 Chevelle is painted the same colour with gloss clear… A big thanks as always to all of you that followed along on the WIP. I always appreciate the input and comments. I’ve been on the forum for 1 1/2 years now, and have learned a lot of tricks in that time. Thanks to everyone who shares their tips, tricks and techniques on this forum!!! As always, thanks for taking the time to look and comment Cheers, Steve
I started this awhile ago (may have posted before). It was on my mind and after digging it out today I'm going to try to finish it up. It is very close and shouldn't take that much to do so. Here is the SB engine Interior... And the body!
